A Mystery Solved!

Last week, on our visit to Carsington Water, I took some photos of a Redshank and another, unknown, wader. That’s not the real mystery; I’m used to getting confused with waders.

After various searches I’ve decided it’s a Knot, though I’m open to other ideas if you think it’s not a Knot.

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

The mystery was actually where the photos went. I searched everything on my card and couldn’t find them when it was in the computer. When it was in the camera I could see the missing photos perfectly.

Having taken more pictures today and had a revelation I now know the answer.

The missing photos are now being put in the file 101Olymp as the file 100Olymp must be full. I’d often wondered what it was for.

And finally, one for all you Narnia fans…


If you have to ask, you aren’t a fan. šŸ™‚

    I love shorebird challenges…because I can look them up on my iPhone. ? No, seriously, I’m not good at shorebirds until I get dipped in them once a year and after a day or two it all comes back to me but I agree, it looks like a Red Knot.

      Thanks – good to have some confirmation. I usually have a guess and then select the commonest possibility. Now I have time I’m going to try to see more shorebirds. šŸ™‚
